Clearing the air?
Kelly Dodd is clarifying her recent “Anti-American” jab at boss Andy Cohen.
During part one of the Real Housewives of Orange County season 15 reunion, Kelly and Andy got into a heated exchange. It all started when the Bravo boss began grilling Kelly about her controversial Coronavirus comments.
“I mean, the amount of messages that I get that you’re uneducated, you’re putting out misinformation, you’re behaving like a moron,” Andy pointed out.
Kelly fired back, “I get them too, saying that you’re anti-American. That you put your political beliefs out there, that they don’t want to watch a political show.”
A shocked Andy replied, “I’m anti-American because I don’t like Donald Trump?” to which Kelly replied, “Yeah.”
Now, in a new interview with E! News Kelly insists she “didn’t mean” to make her conversation with Andy about Trump. Instead, she says she was trying to make a point about everyone having social media haters.
“I’m a Libertarian, I didn’t vote for Trump. I’m not a Trumper at all,” Kelly said. “But I am a Libertarian so I do have conservative views on things but I am socially liberal. I believe in gay rights, I believe in abortion.”
“My point with Andy was that you can always find negative comments on social media. Some people with zero posts and zero followers comment, but the vast majority of comments about me are positive,” she explained. “My point wasn’t always to find negative comments about me, but I was saying you can find negative comments about him, you can find negative comments about you.”
However, Kelly says she doesn’t regret spewing the “Anti-American” jab at the big daddy of Bravo.
“No, because he was talking about how people were coming after me. People come at me and tell me bad things about him all the time, it doesn’t mean it’s gospel,” she said. “We all get things that are negative comments. And my point was that just because people come to me and say he’s anti-American doesn’t mean he is. You know he had Meghan McCain on there who is Republican, he supports the troops.”
Part two of the RHOC season 15 reunion airs on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
